Trusted Advisor to Franklin Templeton and Its $898 Billion Portfolio

As a global investment management organization with $898 billion in assets under management, Franklin Templeton's mutual funds  face many regulatory and compliance challenges. For more than 25 years, Stradley has advised Franklin as registered fund and advisor counsel. For example, Stradley Ronon's investment management team assisted on the creation of a manager-of-managers alternative strategies fund, which relied on a first-of-its-kind exemptive order that Stradley helped Franklin obtain. Also, we led on the formation of a new Franklin Templeton insurance product fund – a multi-strategy fund, portions of which are managed by various affiliated investment managers. Stradley also helped Franklin launch its first exchange-traded fund. In addition, we have worked with Franklin Templeton to implement the changes required by the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010. These regulatory changes have had a profound impact on asset managers and the regime in which they operate.
